If you’ve been watching our videos for a while, you might have seen my old shop space:
Unfortunately, it’s also located on a property that we don’t own anymore. You see, we moved to a different part of Utah a couple months ago, and with all our travel I haven’t had time to set up the new shop yet. Good news, I’m finally FINALLY starting to change that.
The space for my shop in our new digs is actually quite nice, as you see in the video. But building it out has taken a back seat to the hundred thousand different little projects that pop up when you move. Many of those projects entered me into a weird chicken-and-egg loop, with conversations like this:
Me: “Hey. I’d like to start putting together my shop.”
Stef: “Sure sweetie. As soon as you finish the shelves I asked you to make.”
Me: “Uh… but I need a shop to make those shelves.”
Stef: “Oh. Well maybe you could modify that rack in the pantry instead.”
Me: “Need the shop for that one, too.”
Stef: “Add a toe-kick to the cabinets in the…”
Stef: “Well, is there anything you *can* do without your shop?”
Me: “Pout. I can pout.”
Eventually, the lack of productivity getting HER projects done wore her down, and here we are. I’ll be putting up these videos at various points throughout the process so you’ll be along to witness the whole ordeal. I hope to be done by the end of the year, but we’ll see how that goes. Things have a way of taking much longer than I expect.
Next up will be the flooring! Looking forward to your thoughts and feedback as I go.
